Facelift surgery requires incisions hidden strategically in the folds of the face and hair. For bald men, this often causes concerns that their facelift scars will not be hidden or it will be obvious that they had work done. This leaves them wondering, “Can bald men get a facelift?”
Luckily, there are many options for Seattle facelift incisions. For men, facelift incisions tend to be different than facelifts from women. Usually, an incision for a male facelift is placed in front of the ear, where the sideburns traditionally sit. Occasionally, depending on the necessary extent, Dr. Santos may also make incisions behind the ear.
Behind the ear incisions are easy to hide in the fold where the ear meets the face. For bald men, the in front of the ear incisions are a concern. Some men may find that they naturally heal well with a nearly imperceptible scar. Dr. Santos also uses an advanced technique where the curve of the ear itself helps disguise the incision. In many cases, this creates an incision that is naturally camouflaged within the shape of the ear.
